Net Neutrality

Lori Swanson: Why I sued the FCC for repealing net neutrality

More than 20 attorneys general are suing the Federal Communications Commission over its decision to repeal "net neutrality" rules.

Last month, the FCC overturned Obama-era rules that kept internet providers from playing favorites with loading speeds, like loading some pages more slowly than their own websites and apps, or blocking them altogether. On Tuesday, the attorneys general for 21 states and the District of Columbia filed a lawsuit to block the repeal, including Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson.
